The 2018 Pinot Grigio Dessimis is a pleasure to taste and also to look at with its beautiful orange, almost-amber color. Notes of dried apricot and peach take on a yellow citrus twang, with hints of almond paste adding an alluring richness. It’s textural and soothing on the senses without a hard edge in sight; instead coasting effortlessly across the palate with ripe orchard fruits, young mango and a hint of exotic spice. An inner sweetness lingers with an air of brown butter and hazelnut. The Dessimis is matured all in stainless steel and takes its color from spending ten months on the fine lees.

This is NOT what you you think you will get when you order “Pinot Grigio”. The producer preserves the naturally pressed color by eliminating all oxidation - it looks like rose. And it has character. This wine will redefine Pinot Grigio. Outstanding.
